Renovascular hypertension is a common clinical presentation in Takayasu arteritis (TA), when the renal arteries are involved. Although most of the patients respond to optimal antihypertensive drug therapy, certain patients with TA require percutaneous or surgical renal artery revascularisation to manage renovascular hypertension. We, hereby, present a 45-year-old woman, who had resistant hypertension secondary to in-stent restenosis (ISR) of renal artery stent in a single functioning kidney. She had successful renal autotransplantation following a failed endovascular attempt to treat ISR. Endovascular and surgical interventions related to renal artery stenosis in TA are discussed in the article.
